Forty-two teachers from two Conservative synagogue preschools participated in a two-year program of Judaic enrichment. While rates of participation were the same and the overall evaluation of the experience was positive at both schools, what appears to be happening subsequent to the conclusion of the formal program is quite different at each of them. The study examines the potential reasons for such different items.
